I run a coffee community in Singapore known as REND! (www.rend.sg
) where we, the 'renderers', serves, shares and give coffee to everyone who wants to know more about coffee. We would organise complimentary
tasting sessions in different locations from a wedding banquet to an art gallery (which the coffee bar is going to be up and running in a few days time!) and to wherever we can plant ourselves.
Being an educator, I successfully trained my fellow educators to be novice baristi (3 of them at least!) behind a prosumer espresso machine at the workplace! We meddled with setting up the espresso machine, PID settings, grinder settings, espresso grind fineness, tamping, extraction time... the whole works, and of course, not forgetting steaming milk to make wonderful latte art - free pour or etching!
We are now into V60 pourover and exploring lighter roast profiles of the many different types of beans from all over the world! Hopefully, more will pick it up and truly start an interesting journey in coffee!
